The Danish partners Mercantec and Moeve identified local quality management as a field for improvement, not only at Mercantec, but as a typical challenge at most of the Danish colleges.
This conclusion was confirmed by the national Danish quality panel and became even more relevant, as local quality management in the context of the major Danish VET reform (Feb. 2014) has become a ministerial requirement for all colleges.
Effective local coordination on individual study plans
Mercantec developed the digital “annual year wheel” to support new effective meeting structures.
During weekly meetings, the teachers monitor the students´ progress and update their individual study plans.These local methods correlate with individual student data from the national platform Elevplan.
After test runs during spring 2015 and further technical adjustments, the method will be disseminated to other colleges in Denmark.
